NP: June 11, 1864 Illustrated New Age: From General Butler’s Department



in June 1864

From General Butler’s Department

FORTRESS MONROE, June 9.—We have no regular communication between this place and the White House.  The mail steamers are running regularly between Washington and the White House, consequently, we can obtain but little news from General Grant’s army.

4 o’clock, P.M.—The steamer John A. Warner, Capt. Cone, arrived from Bermuda Hundred, and reports all quiet with Gen. Butler’s forces, except a little firing in the direction of Petersburg this morn-ing.

No intelligence from Gen. Grant’s army, and no firing heard in that direction for three days.1
